Politics, Society And The Media: What's Going On In Venezuela?

  • Canning House, 126 Wigmore Street, London

Venezuela continues to be in the midst of an unprecedented crisis, gripped by social, economic and political turmoil. Observers speak of a humanitarian crisis, while the recent decision for this year’s presidential elections to be brought forward to the 22nd April are seen by many critics as one more sign of President Maduro becoming increasingly autocratic.

Canning House is delighted to welcome a number of Venezuelan nationals and specialists to present an overview of the social and political situation in the country: Diego Moya-Ocampos, principal analyst for Country Risk at IHS Markit; Dr Marcel Granier, CEO and Chairman of RCTV, a Venezuelan broadcasting company; and Lucinda Elliott, who was reporting for The Times out of Caracas in 2017.

Canning House COO Cristina Cortes will be chairing this event.
